Being Visited by Angels? Here Are 14 Angel Signs that You Are! — The Angel Writer

As a kid, sleep terrified me. I had nightmares. For years. Like pajama-soaking-wake-up-gasping nightmares. I would tuck in my legs and arms tightly under my blankets, making sure there were no missed openings. No legs or hands hanging over the edge of the mattress. Ever. In my child’s mind, I believed that if I was completely covered, nothing could get me. On the really bad nights, I covered my head, too, like a cocoon. Even in the heat of summer. And I didn’t come out until I could see the morning light.

Waking up was only a little better than the nightmare. I’d startle awake…shakened. It seemed so real. Wait – was it real? I’d lie there in total stillness with eyes clenched, trying to silence my breaths so if it was real that “something” or “someone” wouldn’t hear me. Throughout the day, flashes of the nightmare would play back in my mind.

There’s one particular nightmare that’s stayed with me. I was eight years old when it happened. To this day, I can recall the details vividly. In it, I was standing in my childhood home wearing jeans and a blue top with tiny pearlescent buttons dotting a scalloped white collar. It was raining. Hard. And I was in harm’s way. Suddenly, a small, sparkly orb whisked by me, gradually growing into a six-foot tall, brilliantly glowing being. One by one family members who had passed appeared alongside the orb. They spoke in unison, though I couldn’t make out the words. I knew they were there to help. That was one of my earliest memories of an Angel visiting me.

The Angels have many, many ways to show you that they’re around. Sometimes, these Angel signs appear during unexpected or difficult life events when you’re in special need of hope, comfort, encouragement and connection. These highly vibrational beings are always with you to guide you safely on your path. And they’ll send little clues to let you know they’re by your side. All you have to do is ask for help and keep a lookout for these signs so you can fully appreciate their Angelic messages.

Here are the 14 most common Angel signs

1. Dreaming of Angels

Some say dreams are windows to the soul. Others argue that the soul is more “awakened” when you’re dreaming. In the dream state, you’re more receptive to receiving messages and premonitions. That’s because we don’t have the blockages and distractions that we do when we’re wide eyed.

Having Angel dreams? These divine beings may be sending reassurance that they are indeed watching over you. They may also be delivering important messages or guidance you may be seeking or needing.

Tip: Can’t remember your dreams? Before you go to sleep, ask your Angels to visit in your dreams and for their assistance in helping you remember their message. Say to yourself or out loud:

Angels, please come to me tonight in my dreams and allow me to be open to receive the divine insights I need to help me with [current situation]. Please help me recall this message upon waking and give me the guidance, courage and confidence to apply in my life. Thank you for your ever-loving support.

Keep a small journal or notebook and pen by your bed so you can jot everything down. With practice, you’ll be able to improve your recall.

2. Angel orbs

Have you ever taken a photo only to discover later that there’s a strange-colored orb? Ever look up and see brilliant specks of light dancing around you (and you’re not staring into the sun)? It’s long been rumored that these glorious light phenomena are signs that your Angels are near.

3. White feathers

Finding white feathers on your path is a classic Angel sign. Now if you’re visiting the zoo, seeing feathers doesn’t count. The trick is finding an unexpected white feather in an unlikely location. Interpret its presence as a reminder that you’re not alone.

4. Sweet scents

If you happen upon a beautifully sweet smell (and a cupcake isn’t nearby), it may be confirmation that your Angels are here. The Angels will often use scents – such as food, flowers, perfume – to reach out to you.

5. Babies see something you don’t

Angels, babies and animals share a natural connection. Angels are said to comfort both. So, if you see little ones staring up at the corner of a room, clapping their hands and pointing, or smiling at something you can’t see, it could be an Angel.

6. Pets see something you don’t

Just like babies, pets can see and sense Angels around them. I’ve personally watched as Fiona, my Kerry Blue Terrier, followed a glowing orb with her head as it floated from one side of the room all the way to the other.

7. Angel clouds

As kids, we’ve all lain on the grass, trying to make out images in the clouds. When Angels are trying to communicate with us, they may send us meaningful symbols and shapes, like hearts, in the form of clouds. Or you could see wings – even a full Angel silhouette.


Angel numbers

First you see 11:11 on the clock. Then a street sign, followed by an airline ticket and the license plate of the car in front of you. Well, your Angels may be trying to grab your attention. The Angels use repeated number sequences to alert you to their presence and communicate important messages to you.

There are endless Angel numbers out there, and each combination means something very different in your life. The one thing that every number has in common? They all suggest that the Angels are present and looking out for you. Pay close attention when you see repeating Angel numbers to discern their unique divine message meant just for you.

9. Sudden temperature changes

Did the room turn inexplicably cold? Warm? An Angel’s presence can affect room temperature. Unexplained and drastic fluctuations could indicate that your Angel entered the room or is by your side.

10. Angel voices

Yes, you can absolutely hear an Angel talking to you! The voice may sound like it’s coming from inside your head or outside of you, as though a physical person is speaking to you (but no one is around).

You may hear your name, helpful advice (“Take Oak Street instead of Spruce”) or just muffled voices.

Tip: If you can’t make out what they’re trying to communicate, simply ask your Angels to speak louder and clearer. Trust me, they don’t mind.

11. Physical sensations

If you’re experiencing tingling at the crown of your head, your Angels are close by. Some believe that the crown of the head is loosely correlated to an Angel’s halo, and that the Angels use this sensation to subtly communicate with us humans.

Or perhaps you notice a light touch on your hand. Or someone gently patting your hair when you’re feeling down. The Angels may be stopping by to reassure you that you’re not alone and they’re watching out for you.

Tip: What do you when you notice these sensations? It’s perfectly fine to acknowledge them. Say to the Angels:

Thank you Angels for revealing your presence and showering me with your never-ending love and support.

12. Music

Music is a popular vehicle the Angels use to communicate with us. Why? Humans are musical beings – we love songs. Have you ever heard anyone say they don’t like music? Me neither. That means we would be very open and receptive to messages sent via song. Sometimes a song may merely suggest the Angels’ presence. Other times, the Angels may be sending you a specific message you need to hear in the form of lyrics.

Funny story. I asked Archangel Gabriel to send me a message, a sign, that he was near. For one week straight, I heard Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton every single morning on different radio stations on my way to work. Well played, Archangel Gabriel…message received 😊.

13. Coins

Coins are a super-fun way for the Angels to pop into your life. Have you been asking for financial help? The Angels may place money, especially coins, in your path to let you know that they’re on the job and abundance is on its way. Finding a group of coins that include an “11” is an extra special blessing (think 11 cents, $1.11). The Angel number 11 is considered to be one of the most profound of all the Angel numbers. It’s associated with higher purpose, enlightenment and intuition.

So next time you find coins in the parking lot, pick ‘em up and thank the Angels for working their magic.

14. Unexpected interactions with animals

Animals such as hummingbirds, butterflies and dragonflies are commonly associated with the Angels. If one of these winged beings crosses your path unexpectedly, it could be a sign from the Angels. Each creature conveys a powerful spiritual meaning for your life. Like the white feather, it’s important to keep perspective. If you’re visiting a butterfly preserve, seeing a butterfly doesn’t necessarily denote an Angelic connection. However if a bevy of butterflies creates a unique formation before you, well now we’re on to something. Read more about the spiritual meaning of butterflies.

Angel Signs | Signs of an Angel Watching Over You

Ever wonder if those little feelings or hunches may be the whisper of an angel? Have you found a feather or penny in your path and wondered to yourself if it might be the sign of an angel?

Angels are divine beings of love and light, sent here to protect, heal and guide us on our journey through life. They work for our peace and happiness and are here to help us fulfill our life's mission on earth. 

They send us messages of inspiration and wisdom to guide us through difficult times in our lives or warnings to protect us from danger. The messages can be quite subtle - something as simple as a hint, nudge or feeling.

The messages or signs may seem out of the ordinary and can be repetitive or delivered to you over the course of time.

While Angels can communicate with us in many ways, you are always the expert on what the sign may mean and how it applies to your life. It is said that the Angels will always respect your free will; while they may offer you their guidance, it is always up to you to accept or reject their assistance.

Below is a list of what is considered to be the most common signs of Angels, in no particular order of importance:

Finding a white feather

While any feather may be a sign, white feathers are often thought of as the "calling card" of the Angels. A feather may especially be an Angel sign if it appears in some unexpected place, such as in your purse or a shelf in your house, where its presence cannot easily be explained.

A white feather may be a message of encouragement and reassurance. It may be an angel's way of reminding you not to give up, to let you know that the end to your struggle is near. It may also just be a reminder that you are not alone and that your Angels are here by your side.

Finding coins

Have you ever heard of the phrase "pennies from heaven"? Pennies or dimes found in unusual places can be signs from the Angels, letting you know that they are here to love and support you.

Sometimes these coins may have a personal meaning that relates to some issue or question your have been pondering in your life. When you find one of these unexpected coins, it is suggested that you try to remember what or who you were thinking about when you encountered it.

Does it have any unique markings? Does the year or type of metal have any significance to you? It may just be an affirmation to something you have been wondering about.

Flashes of light

Sometimes you may see unusual light effects, such as flashes, unexplained shimmers, sparkles in the corner of your eye, or shafts of light streaming around you.

Or perhaps, what appears to be the glint of a bright mirror when there is no sunlight around. Sometimes they are strange orbs, that may also appear in photographs.

These extraordinary light effects are often considered to be signs of an Angel's presence.


A rainbow, especially when seen on a clear day when it hasn't rained, is often thought be to an Angel sign.

Rainbows are a symbol of hope and encouragement - a reminder that if you can just endure a little longer, you will make it through the storm and come shining through on the other side.

They are also a symbol to have faith in yourself - to believe that you have the strength, wisdom and creativity to succeed.

Direct messages

It is said that Angels can sometimes give you both love and detailed guidance through the use of text.

For example, you may see a message on a billboard that seems to have a personal significance or be relevant to an issue you have been dealing with in your life. You may then see a same or similar message in a magazine, or a book may fall from a shelf, unexpectedly opening up to a page with a meaningful passage or phrase.

The repetition of this text might seem unusual or to strike a chord with you because it may contain the answer to a question you have been pondering. These messages might be a way for your Angels to reassure you that they are nearby and also to offer you some direct guidance.

Tingling sensations, goosebumps or chills

Sometimes, the presence of an angel can cause physical sensations like chills, goosebumps or tingling sensations near the crown of your head, back of your neck, shoulders or upper arms. These feelings may also manifest as a feeling of sudden warmth or the tingling you feel when your foot falls asleep.

It is said that these sensations are caused by the Angels connecting with you and lifting your energy closer to their level, which can feel like a tingly or buzzing feeling.

These sensations may be an angelic confirmation that what you are currently thinking or feeling is on the right path. They may also be a call to raise your awareness, or to pay attention to what happens next. 

The feeling of being touched

The touch of an angel may feel like a soft brush across your arm or neck, a gentle hug or someone patting you on your shoulders or back. 

Sometimes Angels may communicate touch by a sudden change in temperature. It is said that if you feel a sudden warmth while you are praying or meditating, it may be that your guardian angel is nearby or has moved closer to you.

Symbols and images in clouds

You may see the figure of an angel in the clouds, heart shapes, flowers or other symbols. Doreen Virtue, the founder of Angel Therapy, notes that Angels love to use clouds to send us messages because they are easy to shape in any way and are beautiful to look at. Clouds are a common way for Angels to send messages of love from Heaven.

Angel signs and symbols can also be present in places where it is easy for Angels to make shapes, such as shadows, bath foam, or tea leaves.


Angels sometimes make their presence felt through pleasant smells or aromas, like flowers, delicious food or perfume. This is especially the case when the smell suddenly fills the air and there is no easy explanation for its presence. 

If you happen to be with a group of people, a striking situation may occur where some people notice the scent quite strongly and others not at all.

When the scent smells like the perfume or aftershave of a deceased loved one, it is said that the Angel may be accompanied by that loved one.

When you encounter an unexpected smell that fills the air, it may be useful to ask yourself, "What or who does the smell remind me of?" or "What was I thinking about when the scent filled the air?"

Music & television

It is said that the Angels may sometimes communicate with you through media like music or television. You may be driving in your car, changing the radio stations when you hear the words of a certain song that seem to hold the answer to a specific issue in your life. Sometimes those same lyrics will repeat themselves over and over in your head.

Or, you may be flipping through the stations on your TV when you come across a show that seems to relate to something that has been troubling you. 

When you come across these situations, it might be a good idea to pay attention, as it may very well be a celestial message.

A ringing in your ears

Sometimes the Angels want to give you useful information that you may not be ready to use yet. It is said that they will sometimes transfer the information to you as an angelic "download".  While you may not be ready to use this information right away, it is something that may come in handy or become relevant later. 

The sound signalling such an event can be nearly quiet, very loud, or like bells or buzzing. When the noise is too loud or distracting, it is always okay to ask your Angels to turn down the volume.


These are those special moments when unexpected things seem to come together in just the right way. For example, my husband had been looking for an out-of-print book for many months online. 

Every morning he goes for an exercise walk. On one of these mornings, he happened upon a box of items on the curb that someone was giving away. Lo and behold, while sorting through the box, he came upon the very book he had been looking for!

Perhaps these events that we think of as coincidences are not quite accidental, perhaps they are the work of Angels.

Phone calls

Have you ever been thinking about someone, perhaps an old friend you had been wishing to talk to again and suddenly the phone rings and it is them? These incidents are sometimes seen as the intervention of Angels.

It may be that the Angel caused that person to think of you just when you needed them the most. Or, the Angel may have given this person some wisdom or clarity to offer to you at just the right time.

Random moments of noticing beauty

These are those moments when everything is going wrong and you're feeling upset or frustrated - you're late for work, you forgot some important papers, your boss is upset with you - and then you suddenly notice something wonderful. It could be a gorgeous sunset, the sound of birds singing, the smell of roses or of some delicious food, like cinnamon rolls. 

These random moments of beauty could be the work of the Angels trying to gently bring you out of your lower state of mind and back into a place of calm, happiness and peace.


Butterflies are often seen as gifts sent by lost loved ones as a reminder that they're watching over us or to let us know that they are doing okay.

Angel numbers

If you see certain numbers or number sequences repeated over and over to you again, it may be a sign of Angels trying to get your attention. For example, you may see the number 11:11 on a clock, then notice the amount $11.11 on a receipt, and then notice an unknown phone call coming from a number containing the digits 1111. 

Or, you may find yourself waking up every morning at 4:44.

Angels are known to use numbers to communicate different messages. A great resource on Angel Numbers can be found here.

Solar Plexus

When you feel butterflies or a knot in your stomach, this could be a warning from the Angels that something is not right. Your Angels may be using your Solar Plexus chakra to remind you to be careful and become more aware of your surroundings.

When you feel tension in your stomach around a certain person, the Angels may be warning you to be careful around this person or to limit the amount of time you spend with them.


Robins are sometimes associated with visits from deceased family members or friends. They will often visit the same garden year after year, letting loved ones know that they are always near.

Babies and animals

It is said that babies and animals do not yet have the sames filters that we as adults have that block our ability to see Angels. You may notice your baby looking at what appears to be nothing and smiling. Or, you might notice your dog or cat following with their eyes something invisible that seems to be moving around the room. 

It is possible that their attention is drawn towards an Angel. In the presence of an Angel, babies or pets will seem relaxed and happy, but also filled with excitement.

The feeling that you are not alone

You may feel that there is someone else in the room, even though no one is there. Or, you may feel that there is an invisible presence sitting next to you on a couch or bed. These angel signs are said to be accompanied by feelings of warmth and safety or of unconditional love.

When you encounter an Angel sign, it is said that you should stay aware and be present in the moment, allowing yourself to be open to receiving divine messages. You should also send the Angels gracious thanks for their help.

Experts say that your intuition acts similarly to an antenna that can pick up angelic communications. It is through your willingness to open your mind that you can accept these messages.

While the Angels may offer you guidance, they do respect that you have a free will and it is always your choice to accept or reject their assistance. It is also important to remember that you are the expert on the meaning of any signs you receive and to interpret them in a way that is appropriate for your life.

Signs that show that your Angels are near

Interesting materials

Are there Angels near you? Here is a brief overview of some of the common signs that give away an angelic presence. They may appear as a test or an answer to a question you asked, or simply for no reason to remind you once again that the Angels are there and are always ready to help us.

While many of these angel signs may seem insignificant, they have a truly magical quality: when you focus on them, recognize them and appreciate them, angel signs will appear more often and in larger sizes!)))


Found feathers - one of the most common and famous angelic signs (especially for white feathers).

Even if you find a white feather on a dovecote or in a chicken coop, remember - this is almost always a sign that your Angels are near, love you and invisibly support you)).


Angels often make their presence known through the power of scents. You can notice the presence of your Guardian Angels through the delicious, deep and rich chocolate smell, and the proximity of the Archangels through the sweet, sublime scent of flowers.

And if you suddenly feel a terrible smell, know that this is definitely not a sign from your Angels! Angelic fragrances are always divine.


Clouds similar in shape to Angels with wings is another way to determine the presence of the angelic in our lives.

Sometimes these clouds can be in the form of hearts, houses and other objects that symbolize something and guide you on the right path.

Children and animals

Unlike most people, children and animals do not have filters that block the vision of Angels. Have you ever noticed a child smiling and looking at the ceiling? Or maybe your cat was staring at something you can't see, spellbound? There is a possibility that at this moment they are looking directly at the Angel.

When the Angels appear, small children and animals calm down, experience delight, lightness. They have no sense of fear - and you should not be afraid either!


Angels often communicate through music, whether it's a favorite song playing in your head all day long, or listening to peaceful, calm music while meditating.


The found coins are a clear sign of guidance and support from the spirit realm. It's nice to know that any coin found was deliberately left in your path as a symbol showing that you are loved, appreciated and have the support of higher mentors. These coin-signs are especially timely when we need financial assistance more than ever.

Reflections of light (sunbeams)

Since Angels are manifestations of love and light, their presence can be betrayed by a bright star, a beam streaming down, a flash of fire that has arisen without an actual light source . .. Consider yourself lucky if you witness flying angelic balls)).


The rainbow is a famous symbol of Divine love. Ask for a sign and see a rainbow? Consider that it is with a high degree of probability that the Angels themselves confirm that they are with you. Especially when a rainbow appears in a sunny sky without a hint of rain... Rainbow circles around the Moon or a double rainbow are additional signs that bring confirmation and support from heaven.

Temperature change

The change in temperature associated with the presence of Angels is manifested by a sudden chill, a tingling in the neck, or a sudden sensation of warmth. In any case, it does not cause any discomfort.


Sometimes Angels make their manifestation obvious, giving an overwhelming feeling of unconditional love. And if you are full of bright and tender feelings for all living things, sharing this love with the whole world, then . .. it is very likely that the Angel is YOU!

Signs and announcements

If you ask your Angels for help, be open and vigilant to notice a certain word, phrase or number on billboards and signs, in street names and even on product labels. If a book has fallen off the shelf in front of you in a bookstore, pay attention to which page it opens on. It could be an angelic sign!)

Seven signs that the guardian angel is somewhere nearby

Photo: Depositphotos / rolffimages

The guardian angel is considered a spiritual being, helping to overcome all life's difficulties. However, there is another position - supposedly this is a dead person who reincarnated into a heavenly entity. How to understand that the keeper is ready to help? There are several non-obvious signs indicating its presence.


This unusual natural phenomenon may indicate that the guardian angel is somewhere nearby. If you saw a rainbow at the moment of sadness and sadness, then be sure that the heavenly intercessor has come to cheer you up and remind you that you need to fight to the end.

Found coins

Coins underfoot usually speak of unfulfilled promises of a person. But behind the "iron" symbol, the guardian angel can also hide some kind of clue - the date, denomination, etc.

Flying Feathers

Feathers soaring in the air are considered the most reliable sign of the presence of a guardian angel - especially in cases where there is not a single bird nearby. If you find a feather in the most unusual place, save it - the amulet will surely protect you.

Feeling cold or warm

Suddenly cold sweat? Perhaps your guardian angel points out some mistakes - so that you come to your senses and change your behavior. And a pleasant feeling of warmth can mean support from a spiritual being.


Clouds that look like various figures remind a person that now it is necessary to focus on the main thing and not be scattered in business. Take a closer look at what form the white clot takes - it can be some kind of object, animal or person.

Faulty Gadgets

An unexpectedly broken remote or dead battery does not always indicate a technical problem. Perhaps the guardian angel encourages you to think about your desires, as they may not be safe.

You hear your own name

Did you imagine that you were called by name? For a person with a healthy psyche, this is a harbinger of important events - a move, a fateful meeting, a long-awaited admission to a university, etc.
